Seven soups every Saturday: leftover turkey soup recipes


I know, I know, you haven't even cooked your Thanksgiving turkey yet. If, like me, you haven't bought your turkey yet, it's not too late to factor in an extra pound or two, to ensure you'll have plenty of leftover turkey for soup. Most any soup you make with shredded chicken can be made with turkey, and there's the added bonus of a roasted turkey carcass to create a richly flavored stock. Don't forget the leftover stuffing -- turn it into giant "croutons" for your soup.

Seven leftover turkey soups caught my eye this week:

Spicy turkey soup with yogurt, chickpeas, and mint, from Simply Recipes

Turkey noodle soup, from Andrea Meyers

Leftover turkey and sweet potato soup with black beans and lime, from Kalyn's Kitchen

Next day turkey soup, from RecipeGirl

Leftover turkey coconut curry soup, from Endless Simmer

Leftover turkey pho, from Healthy Green Kitchen

Creamy wild rice and turkey soup (slow cooker), from Taste and Tell

I always look forward to making turkey soup right after Thanksgiving dinner. I just throw the carcass right into the pot with carrots, onions, celery and whatever herbs I have left. One of my favorites is turkey congee the day after Thanksgiving for breakfast.

Sounds like some great ideas, and thanks for including my Turkey, Sweet Potato, and Black Bean Soup!

This looks great. And I always factor in an extra pound or FIVE for leftovers.

I love homemade soup.

I always look forward to making soup from the leftover turkey carcass. Soup is the perfect remedy to the rich and abundant Thanksgiving meal. One year I had a traditional turkey and a smoked turkey. Two soups. One the tradtional tureky noodle soup, the other a lentil and smoked turkey soup. Enough to freeze and share.

I'm building up my supply of turkey stock as I write. Need some for making the stuffing and gravy. You can't have too much gravy, can you? If you do, make soup!

Thanks for the round up Lydia. I'm craving turkey soup right now!
